It’s one year to go until Royal Borough residents take part in the nation’s biggest survey when the Office for National Statistics (ONS) carries out the 2011 Census in England and Wales.

Every 10 years a census takes a numerical snapshot on a single date to gain an accurate picture of the population. The date for next year is Sunday 27 March.

The census asks about work, health, national identity, citizenship, ethnic background, education, second homes, language, religion, marital status and so on.

These statistics are used to build a picture of today’s society and determine the amount of government funding the Royal Borough will receive for essential services such as education, transport, schools and housing. That’s why it’s crucial that every resident takes part.

In March 2011 questionnaires will arrive by post and can be returned using a pre-paid envelope or – for the first time ever – can be completed online via a secure internet site.

The questionnaire should take around 10 minutes for each person’s details to be entered. The information provided – which is protected by law – will help shape the local community for years to come.

More information on the 2011 Census can be found at www.census.gov.uk
